Appearance Change in Virtual Environments: Transforming Avatar Identities

Introduction to Appearance Change

In the dynamic realm of virtual environments, the ‘Appearance Change’ feature introduces a novel way for avatars to alter their visual appearance. Whether it’s adopting the look of a hunter, a character from a story, or any other persona, this feature provides a means for temporary transformation. By equipping the Appearance Change component to an object (designated as Object A), avatars can change their appearance upon contact with the object, with the target object becoming hidden and the avatar assuming a new form for a set duration.

How to Implement Appearance Change

Steps for Activating Appearance Change

  1. Selecting the Asset: Start by choosing an asset from the left panel. (See attached image ① for guidance).
  2. Placing Assets on Terrain: Position the selected assets on the terrain. (Refer to attached image ②).
